Norbreck were motorcycles produced in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, from 1920 to 1922.

These machines had an Arden 269cc two-stroke engine and Arden pressed-steel forks. Transmission was either single- or two-speed Burman - both with belt final-drive. Later on, specification included a three-speed box of the maker's own design. There was also mention of a medium-weight model with a 348cc sv Blackburne engine, although this was never listed.

In 1922 further options included a Moss two-speed box and a Ladies' Model. It was their final year.
